High-Pressure Die Casting 

High pressure die casting part for automotive and electrical equipmentHigh-pressure die casting is a process in which it forces molten metal into a mold cavity under high pressure.  The high pressure used in this process allows for a much more detailed and accurate final product. 

According to, it is applicable for large-scale production and used for metals with high melting points, such as aluminum, brass, and cast iron. 

The high-pressure die casting process begins with melting the metal in a furnace and then injected into the mold cavity under high pressure. The metal cools and solidifies in the mold, then ejects the part. The high pressure in this process ensures that the metal retains its shape and produces a robust and durable component. 

Some advantages of high-pressure die casting include: 

  • The process produces parts with tight tolerances and smooth surfaces 
  • It is a fast and efficient way to produce large quantities of parts 
  • The process is adaptable to automation, which reduces labor costs 
  • High-pressure die casting is well suited for creating complex shapes 
  • Using the process with various metals, including aluminum, brass, and cast iron. 

Aluminum Castings

Aluminum castings are a versatile and essential manufacturing component for many industries. Our facility specializes in aluminum die castings, which create complex geometric shapes. 

We offer small, medium, and large die castings, with parts weighing up to 10 pounds. Our machine sizes range from 600 to 725 tons. 

We specialize in several different aluminum alloys, such as: 

  • 380 
  • 383 
  • 413 

In addition, we have to die-cast machine cells dedicated to high-pressure aluminum die casting. These cells consist of 600 – 725 ton die casting machines, and 600LB/hour 4800LB capacity furnaces, and maintain tight tolerances of +/- 0.0025. Mold longevity can range anywhere from 40,000 shots to 100,000 shots depending on part and mold design complexities.

Zinc Castings

When it comes to creating complex yet durable metal parts, zinc castings are in a league of their own. ThoughtCo states that various products have zinc alloys, such as corrosion-resistant marine components and musical instruments. Able to reproduce even the most intricate shapes, zinc castings are applicable for small to medium-sized parts. 

And thanks to die-cast cells that use high-pressure zinc alloy, these parts are also solid and resistant to wear and tear. Plus, with mold longevity of up to 1,500,000 shots, you can be sure that your zinc castings will be around for the long haul. 

We specialize in several different zinc alloys, such as: 

  • Zamak 3 
  • Zamak 5 
  • Hybrid ZA-8 
  • Hybrid ZA-27

CNC Machining Capabilities 

DyCast Specialties offers a wide range of CNC machining capabilities to create your needed parts. 

We use state-of-the-art software and equipment, including: 

  • Our facility has three CNC Vertical Milling machines, each capable of producing high-quality parts and components. 
  • Our machining center is located in-house and has a tolerance level of +/- 0.00025 inches. 

Finishing and Deburring 

DyCast Specialties offers various finishing and deburring services to create the perfect product for your needs. 

We offer three types of vibratory finishing: 

  • Vibratory finishing: Removes burrs, sharp edges, and other imperfections from metal parts and components, smoothing out the part surface making it ideal for cosmetic applications and best used on small, medium, and large castings. 
  • Tumbler finishing: This method uses a rotating drum to smooth and polish the surface of metal parts. It works excellent for deburring small casting components. 
  • Cryogenic Deburring: This process uses liquid nitrogen to remove flash from metal parts. Castings that are small to medium work best with this method. 

DyCast Specialties also offers various coating and plating options to protect your parts from corrosion and other environmental factors. 

Additional Processes 

DyCast Specialties helps you create the perfect product by customizing it to your needs and preferences. 

What We offer:


This process relieves internal stresses in metals caused by heat treatment, welding, or machining. It makes the metal more ductile and less brittle and improves its machinability. 

Shot Bead Blasting

This process uses steel shot to remove surface impurities and create a smooth, even finish. The advantages of shot bead blasting include a clean surface, improved adhesion, and increased corrosion resistance. 

Chromate Conversion

Adding multiple coats and cleanings creates a thin, protective layer on the surface of the aluminum and other metals. It improves corrosion resistance and durability. 

Clear Anodizing

This process creates a protective layer on the surface of aluminum parts. It is ideal for applications where the cosmetic appeal is essential. Clear anodizing provides advantages such as many color choices, extended service life, and improved corrosion protection. 


This method gives a protective covering to metal components widely used in the automobile and appliance industries. E-coating offers advantages such as increased corrosion protection, improved durability, and a wide range of color choices. 

Black Zinc Chromate

This plating process gives a black finish to metal parts often used for cosmetic purposes. 

Bright Zinc Chromate

This plating process gives a bright, shiny finish to metal parts also used for cosmetic purposes. 

Yellow Zinc Chromate

The plating process gives metal parts a yellow finish. 

Liquid Paint

This process gives a smooth, even finish to metal parts. It is available in a wide range of colors. 

Pad Printing

This process allows for transferring complex designs and patterns onto metal surfaces. 

Powder Coat Paint

This technique leaves metal components with a smooth, uniform appearance. There are a variety of colors to choose from.
